Hurricanes power into Super Rugby final with win over Chiefs

There's a rumour that Sam Cane stuck a finger in Victor Vito's eye, partly inspiring Perenara to boot Cane in the face later. Must be in the act of scoring around 2:45 - can see Vito holding his eye but I can't see anything dodgy from Cane. Not on this video anyway.

Hurricanes masterclass in the wet sets up home semi final

I've now seen this in more detail and close-up -http://www.rugbydump.com/2016/07/5199/tj-perenara-big-bump-on-opposite-number-sets-up-great-hurricanes-try.

100% legit on closer viewing. An absolute beauty. To be honest, I loved it even when I thought it was illegal.

Nice forearm smash by Perenara around 1:17. Not entirely legal but rather effective!

Friday Funnies: James Haskell and Owen Farrell Best Mates Compilation

"Of course it's all just a bit of a character Haskell is playing" - well, yes to an extent and particularly the David Brent element, but I met the bloke at a do a few years ago and he was EXACTLY like this for the whole evening.. Bloody hilarious if you ask me.

Ah, I see!

Anyway, pretty flat terrain where I live so I have to improvise...

A few rounds of that gets the old blood pumping!

(Apologies for the vertical filming, but thought it made sense given the content)

Love it, especially the T-Rex picture. :)

The only bit I'm confused about is why you described the old coach's hill-running idea as "horrendous advice"?? Clearly it's a bloody brilliant idea...

Former League star Timana Tahu judo-throws big Langilangi Haupeakui

So no-one on here is the right age to remember the Shamen then?

As a great philosopher once wrote: naughty naughty, very naughty.
(I can have a pretty good guess at the age of anyone who recognises that quote).

This reminds me a bit of Shane Williams taking down big Matt Banahan with that try-saver a few years ago. All very impressive, but completely illegal and in both cases the wee man gets away with it just because everyone loves a David v Goliath. If it were the big No8 throwing the wing around by his neck, there'd be an outcry.
